How do I view discussions. We have been trying to get access for ten minutes and although I have pre registered nothing is coming up to view this video presentation. Are you having difficulties with the webcast? This is very frustrating……

Hi @rosemarya,

Great question! I will post it during the Video Q&A, but briefly, here's what research online states:

– The Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy – often called the gastric sleeve – is performed by removing approximately 80 percent of the stomach. The remaining stomach is a tubular pouch that resembles a banana.
– Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a newer type of weight-loss procedure which offers similar weight loss to the established surgical procedures but with lower risk. It's a minimally invasive procedure that does not involve any cutting of the stomach so there are no scars and recovery time is short.

Will the video start automatically from this page?

Trying view but cannot.

Perhaps a heads up for Florida east coast Mayo Patients might help next time….

I understand the frustration, Jen. The time beside the Q&A announcement states 10:30 to 11:00 CT, but that can be easily overlooked. When you signup for the event, the reminder includes a timezone converter. We have many time zones within the country, and of course, people from around the world tune in to these events. The timezone converter helps everyone no matter where they are find the right time. Hope this helps for the next event. Were you able to watch the video afterwards?
